Remarks by Ambassador Geng Shuang at the UN Security Council Briefing on Ukraine

2024-04-11 12:00

Madam President,

I wish to thank Assistant Secretary-General Miroslav Jenča and Director Edem Wosornu for their briefings. 

The fighting in Ukraine still ongoing. The humanitarian situation is growing dire. The risks of spillover continue to emerge. China finds the conflict getting complicated and protracted a cause for concern. Continued fighting will only aggravates the suffering of innocent civilians in Ukraine and bring more unpredictable risks and challenges to the region and to the world. 

There are no winners in conflicts or wars. Dialogue and negotiation represents the only viable way out of the Ukraine crisis. China once again calls upon the parties concerns to engage in direct dialogue and negotiation, take the first step towards a political settlement, jointly promote the deescalation of the situation, and achieve a ceasefire as soon as possible. The international community should intensify its efforts and actively create conditions for this. 

On the Ukraine issue, China has always followed an objective and impartial position and has always advocated talks for peace. We always maintained that the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries should be respected, the purposes and principles of the UN Charter should be observed, the legitimate security concerns of all countries should be taken seriously, and all efforts conducive to the peaceful settlement of the crisis should be supported. China will continue to maintain communication with all parties and play a constructive role in promoting a political settlement of the Ukraine crisis. 

Thank you, Madam President.
